Why is nature speculating on the advancement of a species such as us? Why, at least on our planet, have so many other species been deprived from reaching our status? We are here to supplement the advancement of a higher intelligence, but why? Is it nature's noble randomness? In Anthropogenics, Thomas Kakovitch journeys into black holes, quantum randomness, inferential dichotomy and a host of other complexities of nature to answer these fundamental questions.In his previous novel, The Fifth Force, Kakovitch explored the physical nature of force before the existence of mass, electric charges, weak and nuclear charge. More recently, in Collegium, he asks - among other questions - where in our solar system is the best location to curve space to minimise the elapsed time needed to have communication across the vastness of the universe?In his latest book, Kakovitch devotes 13 chapters to exploring such questions as:What lessons can be learned from black holes?How are we ruled by both the informational and physical aspects of nature?What is the impact of the increase of information?Is the idea that randomness rules over nature a fallacy?Do humans achieve immortality with their inventions?Could there be another layer of science that not only operates but perhaps gauges our scientific processing?Kakovitch believes that sometime in the future, we will plant the seedlings for higher intelligence. And that higher intelligence will reach a status of pure action: "To give all and ask for none."
